The most comprehensive guide to more than 1000 pages of Animal Crossing: New Horizons that Japan has received has not only been sold out in digital stores: It is also causing long lines in Japanese stores, just like its direct competitor.
And, despite the wide availability of guides on the internet, such as the one we offer you in igamesnews, there is still a whole market for collectors and passionate players who want to have these posts
The guide, edited by Kadokawa Shoten in collaboration with Famitsu, reached the number one spot for book sales in Japan, even though it is far from the first focused on the game: with 152,836 units sold. In second position is the magazine guide Nintendo Dream with 79,182 copies. The data comes from Oricon, the company that keeps track of sales of books and magazines in the Japanese market.
From Japanese media we get photos of queues with at least a hundred people queuing to buy some of the game's guides: after three weeks, the bookstores and other establishments in Japan have reopened their doors after the relaxation of the measures of social distancing imposed to combat the Covid-19 pandemic, and they have encountered these considerable queues of buyers, as reported by Yahoo! Japan
Both guides have been sold out in online stores since their first day of availability, which undoubtedly explains the queues in physical stores now that they are accessible.
